, indeed, more than 500. there was a point where i think we all wished john mccain had won because he made a few -- he made a lot fewer promises. we took the 500, and for the past but for years, in a product that i think is unprecedented in american journalism, we have been following them, calling people, tracking these things, digging into the budget, and really coming up with the definitive report card on how president obama has done in his first term. host: here is the obameter from politifact. 47% of promises kept, the total in the category for those pledges being kept or even in the works is 72%, 73%. guest: it is really a surprise, i think. it is hard to compare to anything because we did not apply the same methodology to previous presidents. but i have got to say, when we saw over the holidays that it was that high, we were really struck that, particularly in an era of dysfunction and gridlock in congress, that president obama had fulfilled or at least partially fulfilled so many -- as you said, 73%. we will talk more about why that is, but i think if you talk to experts who have do
defense that did not satisfy senator john mccain. >> why do we care? because if the classified information had been included, it gives an entirely different version of events. >> reporter: like mccain, there were some republicans who hillary clinton did not convince. but this was certainly a memorable way to close out her tenure, george. >> and a memorable day, today, coming up, martha. the ban on women in combat going to be formally lifted by leon panetta. it will be a big part of his legacy. but it's also something that's being pushed hard by the military itself, the joint chiefs of staff. >> reporter: true. it was actually the joint chiefs, the marine, the army and other services. but what this reflects is, the reality of the last decade of war. well more than 100 women have died in iraq and afghanistan, where the front lines have blurred. but it does take it to a new level. they could officially be part of infantry units and special forces, if they meet the physical standards. >> and that means more women in top leadership positions in the military, as well. >> reporter: that's exactly
. senator john mccain said i would have liked to have seen some outreej. john thune of dd dd agreed. he said the speech was 30,000-foot stuff and he wasn't doing the outreach stuff he needs to do if he wants to get thinged accomplished in a second term. susan collins said i hoped it would have been a little less partisan at times. after the swearing in ceremonies came the parties. let's say d.c. was rocking into the wee hours. the obamas not only looked amazing, it seemed like they were having a great time. taking it all in. the number of parties were scaled back from the ten four years ago. two last night. there was no shortage of big stars, big moments. brianna keilar has more. >> ladies and gentlemen, my better half and my dance partner, michelle obama. >> reporter: at the commander in chief's ball, jennifer hudson sang "let's stay together" as the first couple danced their first dance of nut term. mrs. obama revealing she chose jason wu yet again to design her inaugural gown. next they appeared at the inaugural ball where 30,000 people were expected to attend. this inaugural ball falls o

. >> senator, that's not accurate. >> senator john mccain was more direct in his criticism. >> american people deserve to know answers and they certainly don't deserve false answers. >> in what may be her final appearance as secretary of state, hillary clinton said the license from benghazi will be learned by the department of state. >> we'll elevate the discussion and decision making so there's not a doubt that everybody is on the same page. >> this is likely to be the final time we will see hillary clinton testify before congress as the secretary of state. on thursday, the senate foreign relations committee will take up president obama's nomination of john kerry after replacements in the second obama administration. tom fitzgerald, fox 5 news. >>> you saw his story first on fox 5. a maryland boy spent nearly two weeks in intensive care battling the flu. >> just the scariest thing you could ever imagine, seeing your child lay there with every tube and iv, coming from every part of his body, and of course him not being responsive. >> guess what? he is recovered and his family is ta
there are two competing filibuster proposals yours and then mccain levin one, right? >> yes. >> stephanie: and obviously i think your's is vastly preferable. yours mean you have to actually stand there and talk, right? >> it's a proposal that says yes, we should get rid of the filibuster, why you should filibuster over getting to a bill. vote up or down let's get to the vote. but very importantly when you do have a filibuster on a motion to proceed -- on a bill itself then people should have to stand -- they should have to stand and debate. one it takes time and energy so it's not a freebee the way it is now to interrupt the function of the senate and second you are before the american people your colleagues and you have to make your case, and the public can weigh in on whether you are a hero or a bum. >> stephanie: there you go. you have seen the latest polls that congress is a little more popular that chlamydia, and a little less popular that ebole la. >> yeah. it is a situation that has been with us for six years, and lyndon b. johnson in six years as majority le

to salter with the mccain campaign in 2008. and i said, why did you guys go the path you did? mark salter? i said, why don't you go ahead and push a bill where somebody worked here for five years. they could go back to mexico. they could apply. and they could come and have legal status. why didn't you go that route? americans would have supported that. he laughed. he said, because the afl-cio opposed it. and the one senator that was constantly at the forefront of opposing that form of immigration reform was a senator from illinois named barack obama. he carried their water on blocking this pathway to citizenship when he was in the senate. the afl-cio put out a press release yesterday talking about the importance of not compromising on citizenship. so the unions themselves -- there are a lot of cross-currents here. the unions themselves don't want an influx of new workers in america, do they? >> no, they don't. that's one of the reasons this organizing for action, jim messina's full-time job is trying to get the union's in line, but it's going to be hard. it's hard on the democratic side. we'
to the back of the line. >> bill: okay, but the kennedy/mccain bill is ancient history. we are talking a new vision now obama never said. >> bill: could be amnesty. >> obama never said that working assumption would be we would be something like we had before and they would work from that. >> bill: kirsten, do you object to anything the senator said? anything that he put forth in the guns or the immigration? is there anything n. there that he is doing wrong? >> i think on immigration, it's a starting point and i think that the democrats can work with him. i personally, you know i'm pro-amnesty, of course, i'm going to have issues with what he said. i don't know why do people have to pay fines. >> bill: because they snuck in the country? >> that's ridiculous. i have friends who are of my generation whose parents are immigrants korean, chinese, italian who don't speak any english. why are we doing this? >> bill: get a translator to tell them they have to pay the fine. we can do that. >> i think they should good it know english why have different standards for these people. >> bill: amnesty do w
hillary clinton in 2008, allowed him to beat john mccain in that general election. and you see those numbers, what they were in january, 2009. >> i forget how much people didn't like that war. and still don't like that war to this day. and that brings us to our nbc "wall street journal" poll we will have tonight and tomorrow morning. >> 6:30 tonight with the first numbers. >> get over to first read and see all of mark's breakdowns. >> thanks, chuck. >>> now to breaking news out of the african nation of algeria, conflicting reports about that hostage situation at a gas plant in the sahara desert. al qaeda-linked militants and local residents claim algerian military helicopters attacked the site this morning. killing at least 15 kidnappers and 35 hostages. a group believed to include foreign civilians. however, an algerian security source tells reuters that dozens of those hostages actually escaped. and yet another report says some hostages are still being held. according to the militants, the kidnapping is present to protest french military strikes against the islamist rebels in mali.
did have that. john mccain, mitt romney, marco rubio, newt gingrich, all you know talking about climate change saying we need to address it. what changed you ask. two things. first of all, the great recession. when people are concerned about the economy, issues that are important but not urgent like climate change fall down the scale. the second change, the rise of the tea party. are you willing to work with the other side? newt gingrich took a lot of heat for that ad with nancy pelosi during the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but bear with me, we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, might it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissions, co2?
john mccain saying her responses were not good enough. that exchange was quite civil and polite. secretary clinton took full responsibility for the lack ever adequate security in her opening statement, which brought her to tears. >> for me, this is not just a matter of policy. it is personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped kass tets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, sons and daughter and wives left alone to raise their children. >> as for the controversial talking points said repeatedly on susan rice if the fall, clinton said she wasn't involved in the creation of the talking point. if you want to see a repeat of the soundbite from hillary clinton, you can see it on cnbc.com. >> they were driven completely from the white house? >> she said she was extremely busy calling the president of tunisia, and trying to beef up embassies and facilities -- >> odd that secretary of state wouldn't be involved in the developing of that. going to the u.n. ambassador who was the person opt t
coming in. >> you do not. and senator mccain was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. john kerry was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. we know that the romneys will not be here today. as we watch, we're looking at the presidential car. and i've read they call it the beast because it is such a fortified machine, the president rides in. and here, he is ready to emerge for his second inauguration. >> and you talk about the day going so quickly again. talking to pierre thomas. this is a day of high anxiety for law enforcement officials. >> the trip to the capitol, many law enforcement officials call it the longest ride or so. we have law enforcement officials at command centers, are manning the surveillance cameras, talking to agents in the field. one source just told me, the only thing going on right now is a man in a tree at garfield circle. and they're trying to talk him down. he's trying to make some kind of political statement. >> that is wonderful to hear. and again, we're watching, we're looking straight through the foyer there, the marble foy

beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterday that obama singled out issues like ensuring that women get equal pay as a key part of the principles he was trying to establish. host: republicans in the house and the senate, what are they saying on this? guest
were we misled that there were protests when there weren't? and senator mccain tried to answer this later, brit. he said, look, your answers are are unacceptable to me, because he thought the administration was trying to keep a soft footprint, that we had it, it was under control and they didn't need a bunch of americans troops there, notwithstanding the red cross left benghazi, an attempt on the british ambassador's life and our consulate attacked and a huge hole in the wall from a bomb dropped us in june of 2012, and yet, he believes we were trying to project, like it's all good and that a terrorist planning an attack may not have been consistent with that projection as we wait to hear hillary clinton and opening remarks, your thoughts on that? >> well, it was a forceful argument made by senator mccain and i suspect it will get some play because it was said with some vigor, but the problem with this, megyn, this hearing and we don't know what will happen this afternoon, but i suspect it will be similar, it the infirmties that these congressional hearings normally have and tha
mccain yesterday.
